Solution

Three vertices of a parallelogram taken in order are A(3, 6), B(5, 10) and C(3, 2)

1) We need to find the coordinates of D.

We know that the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.

Let x, y be the coordinates of D.

∴ Mid-point of diagonal AC = `((3+3)/2, (6+2)/2) = (3,4)`

And midpoint of diagonal BD = `((5+x)/2, (10 + y)/2)`

Thus we have

`(5 + x)/2 = 3` and `(10 + y)/2 = 4`

`=> 5  + x = 6`  and `10 + y = 8`

=> x = 1 and  y = -2

`:. D = (1,-2)`

2) Lenght of diagonal BD = `sqrt((1 - 5)^2 + (-2-10)^2)`

`= sqrt((-4)^2 + (-12)^2)`

`= sqrt(16 + 144)`

`= sqrt(160)`

`= 4sqrt10`

3) A(3,6) = `(x_1. y_1)` and B(5,10) = `(x_2, y_2)`

Slope of line AB = `m(y_2 - y_1)/(x_2 - x_1) = (10 - 6)/(5-3) = 4/2 = 2`

∴ Equation of line AB is given by

`y - y_1 = m(x - x_1)`

`=> y - 6 = 2(x - 3)`

`=> y - 6 = 2x - 6`

`=> 2x - y = 0`

`=> 2x = y`
